Corgi Introduces iCariPod Accessory That Flashes, Jumps, Dances and Pumps up the Volume (February 15, 2006)
Corgi International Limited (NASDAQ: CRGI), the leading name in die-cast scale models, announced today the introduction of the iCar--the iPod(R) Accessory to Get Revved Up About!
Are you ready for the coolest iPod experience yet? Then crank up some tunes, plug in and watch the amazing iCar do its thing: It rocks right to left, front to back, and up and down to the music. Colored lights illuminate the wheel wells, rims, undercarriage, engine and trunk areas, and the high-quality speaker pumps out the sound. You can even manually open the doors and hood to create a whole new look.
Brand new for Fall 2006, Corgi's iCar adds a visual element to digital music that has to be seen to be believed. Start with two of the coolest rides on the road, the Cadillac Escalade and Nissan 240SX. Let the model-making wizards at Corgi run wild and turn them into amazingly detailed 1:24 scale replicas.
The Caddy has with real working spinner wheels, wild graphics, chrome accessories, big tires and stereo system. The Nissan turns into a stone-cold drifter, ready to glide like silk over any surface. Then add the most important part -- the input jack. The iCar comes to life when you plug in your digital music player, bringing an element of sound and vision unlike anything that's come before.
Don't have your iPod handy? No problem -- each iCar comes with its own cool music and is ready to do its thing on a moment's notice. Just want to listen to your tunes? iCar has a speaker only mode as well.
The iCar runs on 3 AAA batteries (included) or with an AC adapter, and can connect to any music source that has standard headphone jacks - all iPods, other MP3 players, CD players, stereos and PC's -- with the included cord. Suggested retail price is $34.99. For ages 8 and up.
